The holidays are fast approaching!  We invite you to make a dream come true for a child this year by participating in the annual DePelchin Children’s Center Holiday Project.  Last year, generous donors fulfilled the holiday wishes of more than 1,300 children. We anticipate that even more children will be in need of your help this year.

You can make this dream come true for DePelchin’s children in three ways:

Sponsor a child to provide items on his or her wish list.  Please visit to add your name to our list of sponsors. We will contact you via email as soon as the children’s wish lists are available. (Average cost to fulfill a child’s wish list is $100-$150. Gift cards of any denomination are also appreciated.)

Host a toy drive.  Collect toys by organizing a toy drive with your friends, social club, church or office.  We have featured a list on our website of the children’s most needed and most wished-for items. 

Make a cash donation.  DePelchin will use your donation to purchase gifts or needed items for the children. You may make a donation online at or mail your contribution to 4950 Memorial Drive Houston, Texas 77007, Attention:  Holiday Project.

On behalf of all of the children and families whose holidays will be brighter through your gifts of time and treasure, we thank you!
